Close friends and partners 05 Mar 2010
Lip Service: Maggie Fox & Sue Ryding
How do you keep everybody happy?

Friends are often the first to be sidelined when a new romance begins, then taken up again when a shoulder is needed to cry on. But what if the problem isn’t that friends are ignored, but that they are too much part of a couple’s lives? How does being so close impact on partners and family life? Maggie Fox and Sue Ryding are probably better known as the comedy duo “Lip Service”. They’ve been writing and performing together for 25 years. They join Jenni with Maggie’s husband Malcolm Raeburn to explain where you draw the line to keep everyone happy and harmonious?
